I'm going to post this here too, just so the information is accessible. Model call will open up in Feb.

>> No.10075709

VIP is sold out, but it looks like there's also a waitlist for it?

Anyway. I'm going as a vendor with GA on the second day. There are so many coord ideas I have! And I want to stick to the theme.

>> No.10075710

I'm thinking I'll go big for the big events and tone it down for other times. I don't usually wear OTT (I like gothic and oldschool classic) and the idea of a giant coordinate on for eight+ hours is not a fun one. I'm definitely focusing on losing as much weight as possible so that I look my best in my brand.

>> No.10075732 [DELETED] 

I was so fortunate yo get a VIP ticket. I've been planning my coords for months already lol. Not really going to stick with the theme personally. All my best ideas have been with pieces that don't really match it.

I've never been to such a big, long Lolita event like this before. Is it normal to wear the same coord all day or change in between the events? I won't be getting a hotel room (I have family in a town nearby that I will be staying with) but I don't wanna be wearing the same coord all day if no one else is.

It's not really big enough to warrent multiple outfits in one day I believe. But if you want to, go for it. Last year there was an after party on day 2, some people changed into more casual clothes for that.

>> No.10075940

I’m going, I’m glad VIP sold out quickly. Might get some new shoes or make something fancy for my head.
I’ve got several things I can wear. Easy choices with one guest being AP.

>> No.10075953

I somehow got a VIP ticket?

Debating if I wanna wear my Aqua Princess fullset or do a more traditional OTT gothic coord with AP's Princess Victoria and a 3F bonnet for day two. I don't know, the possibilities are endless!

Definitely saving up for this and bringing an empty suitcase to bring back a haul with though. :')

Both day tickets are running low! Less than 10 left apparently.

>> No.10076332

So I just bought admission for both days but this is my first big lolita event I've ever been to...

How do I get my ticket? They didnt ask for an email or anything. Is my name just on a list now?

>> No.10076398

I got a VIP ticket but man that shit was stressful. Never seen a site crash that much in my life. They really need to load test their site.

I've been coord planning for about a month now and trying to go on theme. I think of decadence I instantly think OTT classic.

I'm really hoping I can model for AP but I won't hold my breath.

Then you're fine. They'll just check people in at the event.

Damn I feel like modeling for AP is going to be super competitive

>> No.10076719

I only bought day one, since tea parties aren't really my thing, but my birthday is that weekend so I'm ready to spend way too much money. I'm probably going to keep things pretty simple, I recently bought a low key dream dress that I'll probably try to coordinate in some less-generic way than usual. The pressure to go big is too much for me, I'd rather not overshoot and miss my mark, which is a big fear of mine at such a large event.

I feel that way too, even though I do own AP, just nothing spectacular and I don't really do ott coords.

I'm sure it's fine so long as you do your best and not wearing a replica. It's not really a brand hosted event iirc. As far as we know, it's only AP San Fran doing a pop up shop and part of the fashion show.

damn. I was hoping that my friend would be able to model since she loves that brand so much and it suits her in spite of being model height.

Since 3F is choosing the best coord on the same day as the tea party I kinda doubt it'll be hosted by AP. Could be wrong though.

I've modeled for a couple different brands. Portportionate measurements and face are most important. If you don't know how to do your own base makeup and well, you better learn. Also have a variety of well kept wigs and shoes. They'll want to see pictures or in person.

I'm probably not going to wear AP either, I'm just not a big AP fan. Unless I can find one of the handful of older AP prints I actually like between now and then in good condition.

I'm going both days! Friends are planning an airbnb group and carpool. Looking forward to it since this is my first j-fashion convention.

I know my OTT coord will be some goth shit with my Sweet Devil jsk in black, maybe do some crazy hair and accessories :)

As for the other day...it's a toss up between an ero coord with horror garden jsk or a cabaret coord with my rosy night's masquerade jsk. Decadence = sinful to me. I know they're going more for the sweet route with AP and chocolate themes but that's not what I'm about. Hope to see plenty of goth people there

don't wear ero, you fucking ita.

I'm torn, gulls.

Should I wear a coord with a less popular/more obscure print that I'm somewhat confident in?
Should I wear my most coveted piece that I havent fully coordinated yet and work really hard to make it into something I'm proud of?

One is lazier and cheaper but I feel like I'm really going to regret not wearing my highest valued main piece.

Going to also mention that coordinating the coveted piece makes me nervous cause I dont wanna fuck it up

Nayrt but I drove last year from the east coast and it was much less stressful than flying. No deadlines, no worrying about luggage weight restrictions - plus it was nice to be able to stop whenever and grab snacks, hit the bathroom, stretch, etc. Plus I transported a designer/vendor so our car was packed to the max and it was very nice to not have to worry about condensing her wares and displays into tiny luggage.

An entire conspiracy by the KC mods because they didn't like some teenage girl. eyebrows chan was an underage girl that was accused of stealing from Lolita Collective at Naka. She was dogpiled but the entire community just about along with her personal info and pics being posted here to shit on her. Naka staff didn't end up booting her because she explained it was a mistake. Another KC member made a lengthy vid on youtube about it but did a shite job at it but girl accused seems innocent to me. KC mods banned her from Paradiso without telling her and she bought a ticket to Paradiso so they had someone else break the news to her instead.

Nayrt but something could have gotten knocked into a bag or something, or she could have gotten distracted by something and walked off with something she as holding without paying, or something like that. Yeah it sounds kinda silly but it's not totally unheard of especially for, say, an absent minded teen having fun with friends or something.

Either way, I don't know if someone that's underage really deserves to be harassed for it even if it was on purpose. Barring her from events and such, sure, but adults going out of their way to harass her for her eyebrows? C'mon....

>> No.10089482

If it's what I'm thinking of, the claim was that she concealed something in a parasol. I don't know how that could be an accident

>> No.10089743

so where’s that proof?

I don’t recall her saying it was knocked into a bag or parasol but that the items were inspected by naka staff were in a shopping bag because she had purchased a few things from Lolita Collective. Personally I think LC had the wristcuffs set aside for someone else and accidentally bagged them with her items. I’ve been to big cons where LC had a booth multiple times and everytime it seemed like they had a tough time keeping up with everyone in and out. Either way KC mods handled the entire ordeal like shit.

>> No.10089748

She was caught putting taking them with a friend and tried to pass it off whoops I forgot to pay even though she was trying to hurry away.
Kid or not, stealing shit is just pathetic. If you can’t afford it, don’t touch.
This is why all kids should be with someone responsible at events like this. They try and use age as a reason not to get judged.

>> No.10089878

Never heard this variation of the story. what proof is there of this? Even if that was true accidents happen and it’s still not an excuse for grown women to verbally attack a child online. I hope this idiots never have kids since they can’t seem to figure out how to deal with them.

This drama is honestly the reason I stopped going to casual meets from either comm.

My issue isn't her getting called out or punished for stealing things, but that grown ass adults thought it was okay to then go and harass her for it and make fun of her appearance. Like we literally call her eyebrows.
I mean 4chan is the cesspool of the internet and even we have rules against harassing minors.
Teens are dumb. They do dumb shit. They should of course be called out for dumb shit they do cause age isnt a free pass for stealing. But it's still not an excuse to harass someone whose brain literally isn't physiologically developed.

It just makes me think of those date auctions they do at anime cons sometimes, and then someone really meh or unattractive walks out onto the stage and gets no votes or bids and you can just see their confidence shatter.

Idk if it's like that at all since this is my first Paradiso but that's what I'm assuming desu.

It’s more of a planned and rehearsed, intentionally for entertainment performance. But it can still be cringe depending on the contestant and what they planned.

Hope he doesn't attend this year. He's known for making girls uncomfortable and making awkward attempts to earn people's approval by showing off his car.

At least the vanity plates are a good description of his hobo looking ass.

if it’s who I’m thinking of then she deserved being on that list, too. she harassed multiple girls while attending.

I don’t think she ever admitted to it desu. I could be wrong but I’ve never heard of it or seen evidence of this.

long time lurkfag, first time poster. this will be my first year going, I'll be attending the first day.
I'm nervous to put myself out there again after taking such a long break from the fashion so I'm putting some pressure on myself to put together a suitable coord, but I think it will be a nice time.

I don’t recall her being the one harassing anybody. Her (now ex) boyfriend was, but she wasn’t. Did you witness it first hand or something? I have a hard time believing she would do that.

I'm sure you'll have fun, anon.

Yes. She harassed several of the girls her ex had harassed for speaking up about it. Multiple people also witnessed her saying nasty comments about other attendees during Paradiso including models during the fashion show. She was banned because of what she was doing and saying to others not for her creepy ex.

Leasing cars with a double digit salary is so tacky.

It’s not even the cool one with the original lights.
